Breaking the cycle of disease in A Zhuang Village

43 village women have recently had the opportunity to attend a one day training program in their village of A Zhuang, which covered women’s health issues, infectious diseases and childcare. Many of these women have been living with various health concerns for many years.

Healthcare comes to Chuma

These women however, are strong and determined to take care of their families. When they heard that a doctor and medicine was coming to the village the word spread quickly and hundreds of women and children and even some men turned up to attend several days of health training, free medical examination, medicines and critical health information – telling the dangers of STDs, explaining best ways to care for babies and how to manage women’s health. So much of this was new information to these families and has changed many lives.

Health Training Is Saving Lives

Lhamo attended the Captivating Healthy Village Program in 2014. She is a mother of three children and told our project manager how this program saved her life. “It was very shocking when I heard of HIV and other diseases. I never heard such diseases that can take lives gradually. I was given a medical check by the doctor last year and she encouraged me to go to the local hospital for further check. So I did and had to have a little operation after that. I was so lucky to be checked otherwise I would never go to the hospital until I got really sick and by that time my life would be in danger as I was told by the doctors from the local hospital.”
